for a long time and that's not happening anymore we can't let that happen and i have a great relationship with president xi he's a friend of mine but we can't you know i've been telling him we can't let it happen so we may make a deal at some point but right now we just impose two hundred billion dollars at twenty five percent and if there's a retaliation against our farmers and our industrial workers our ranchers if any of that goes on we're going to kick in another two hundred fifty seven billion dollars or less bring in john fredericks now his each campaign chairman in virginia and also on the advisory board on the trump twenty twenty campaign he's live from washington thank you very much for joining us present trump says he still wants to negotiate with the chinese but is this is small a strategy to bring china to the negotiating table that said negotiations can't be done with this kind of tactic why does the president think this is the right move.
well because the president trump is determined to end the chinese exploitation of the american worker you know we have been taken advantage of for thirty years with these trade deals and this is the greatest scam put on the american worker hosted on them by the wall street elites in new york city and both political parties have conspired basically to try to tell the american people that free trade is good for you and they've sold out american jobs the american worker or intellectual property and they've looked the other way while they pad their pockets president truck campaigned on ending this nonsense and he's determined to do it and i think that president. thought that this was just campaign rhetoric that president trump was not going to follow through on but trump has been
saying this for three decades and he's following through on it it's not about rhetoric it's about results right and this is a trade dynamic that the that president trump can't lose he's in a win win situation. he said he didn't mean real thing to ration but so far the chinese are not very tight eating on the contrary they have also slapped tariffs on the u.s. how far is president john willing to push the envelope to drive the high on finding . another two hundred seventy five billion dollars is going to be. imposed on the chinese over the next several months that's number one the president is willing to put tariffs on up to fifty percent of all chinese imports coming into the united states and the bottom line is we have a three hundred and seventy five annual billion dollar trade deficit with the chinese what that means is they get three hundred seventy five billion dollars of u
s cash agilely above what we get from china so the chinese need this money for their economy secondly secondly the chinese making the subsidizing goods and dumping them in the united states they're dependent on the wealth and the buying power of the u.s. consumer the united states doesn't need the chinese consumer so this is a battle that the chinese can't win and as long as the president keeps reacting it look their stock market has gone down thirty two percent in china over the last ninety days this is only the start of it they're going to blink this is your battle you say. you see the need on sts doesn't need the chinese consumer but isn't there a risk that a trade war could spark a deeper dispute between the u.s. and china isn't you know and they considering. well the deeper it
goes the deeper china is in trouble and they're going to have to change their policies and what this president is not interested is some kind of a short term deal where the chinese say we're going to buy so many more tons of soybeans or something else and sweep it under the table president trump is the great disruptor right and he is trying to achieve wall term change in the way the chinese behave in trading with us and still you know it's a tragedy being a short term a long term game let me ask you something that the president tweeted earlier today only tuesday he accused china of trying to interfere in u.s. elections by attacking american family farmers who are loyal to him why would he say this what was this an attempt to rally public support for his plan it's the beacon of truth i mean what the chinese have attempted to do is look at certain industries in swing congressional districts that are dependent on
chinese buying their product the china buying their product so they're targeting those farmers and other things in order to swing the election to the democrats and ride out the clock so president trump call them on it and i think that it's going to backfire on the chinese because nobody wants to be put in a position where another country is leveraging them economically to interfere in the outcome of the united states ill be interesting to see what the next move on each side is thank you very much for speaking to us john fredericks trump twenty twenty campaign. on the trump twenty twenty campaign advisory board thank you for your time. as die jerry and floodwaters are forecast to reach record levels worsening a national disaster that's already left at least one hundred people dead the government has declared a state of emergency in four states but at least twelve states are affected mariana
